  1. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Low pressure oil pump blew apart and cracked timing cover. I’ve replaced both, changed the oil and oil filter. I got the truck to fire one time, and now only turns over not building any oil pressure. Any ideas on what’s going on or how to fix? Any help appreciated. 2005 6.0 Powerstroke F350...
  2. 6.0 Motor problems
    2004 f350 6.0 just hit 150k miles and I did an oil change on it 3 days ago and today and yesterday having issues with it. At stop lights after it is up to temp sounds and feels like it’s going to stall out and while driving it, it seems to get up to higher rpm before wanting to shift and when...
  3. 6.0 Motor problems
    So I have a very strange and hard to pinpoint problem. Occasionally when starting my f350 when it is warm, when the engine rpm comes down after the start up it will start skipping almost? It sounds like someone opening the door on a throttle body very quickly and closing it again. Almost like...
  4. General Diesel Discussion
    I plan on being in the market for a diesel and am seeing a lot of good deals on bulletproofed 6.0. I know the 6.0 can be a problematic engine and that bulletproofing solves many of its problems but can it ever be as reliable as a stock 7.3 or a lightly modded (intake, exhaust, mpg tune) 7.3. And...

    I've been trying to install a new EGR Cooler hose on my truck, and cannot get it on no matter what I do. It does have a delete kit(which I believe to be Sinister Diesel), and I'm trying to put an OEM hose on. Is that the problem? Are there tricks to putting it on?

    Hey all, I'm sure most of the California owners here with tuned engines and modified sticks are going to have a similar problem that I'm in. Currently running 175/30 sticks and damn do they smoke on stock tune. I can't just return to stock tune and go smog. My question is: Can I downgrade my...
  8. General 6.0L Discussion
    Hey everyone, just wanted to share this with anyone who might want to know. Lately I've been having large deltas in EOT and ECT, as well as a hard start when hot. Recently d it an oil change and switched to mobil 1 5w40 delvac and I'm quite surprised. Oil temps dropped significantly from almost...
  9. 6.0L Problems Forum
    So with new, bigger injectors(155/30’s), the truck runs great. However, when letting off the throttle and coasting, the truck will sit at about 900RPM’s until you’re almost at a complete stop, then it’ll drop to an idle. That’s not too concerning, but when you’re in overdrive and begin coasting...
  10. E-Series Van Discussion
    Hey folks! So I did a head gasket change a while back and in a not very proud moment, I neglected to get new valve body gasket. It seemed pretty heavy duty and I didn't realize it was something that needed to be changed. As a result I am getting some oil leaks on the back driver's side. When I...
  11. 6.0L Problems Forum
    So I recently just put in 155/30 injectors, new standpipes, dummy plugs, stc fitting, and oil cooler in my truck. The truck runs great now, other than when you are coasting, instead of dropping to an idle, the RPMs hang at 900-950, and won't go to an idle until you are almost at a stop. I don't...
  12. 6.0L Performance Parts Discussion
    I am looking to upgrade away from stock HFCM pump under the frame rail to a Fass or Airdogg. I have head studs, blue spring, straight pipe exhuast, afe intake, also adding sump with the new lift pump I get, SCT programmer(usually run the performance tune for better fuel economy, but stock...
  13. 6.0L Problems Forum
    I have a 2006 6.0 powerstroke which We believe the stock fuel pump went out in. I am curious as to what years of the 6.0 have the in-tank fuel pump to possibly see if that could be the real problem. From my understanding only certain years of the 6.0 have this?
  14. 6.0 Motor problems
    I am trying to figure out if my truck has a blown head gasket or just a bad oil cooler. When driving 80 on the highway with no trailer my coolant temp is around 196 and my oil was at 233, so I know that it needs a new oil cooler. I also have a thin layer of clean oil in my coolant overflow tank...
  15. General 6.0L Discussion
    Hi All, This is my first post on this forum, but I couldn’t find another post similar to this topic. I’m looking at buying a 2005 F-250 6.0 King Ranch. The one I found has a really clean exterior and interior and appears to be in great condition. The engine has also been built and studded...
  16. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Has anybody had any experience with an injector going bad after a short period of time? I had just installed 8 Warren Premium 155/30’s and the truck ran perfectly fine for about 50 miles, and the truck suddenly started running like crap. Brought it home, truck had a cylinder #3 contribution...

    On the 6.0 HPOP update kit, the updated STC fitting has 3 holes(2 bolt holes). Why does the updated fitting have 3 while the old one has 2(just for the bolts). I’m trying to track down a high pressure oil leak and noticed while sending air through the system that all the air is coming out of it.
  18. 6.0L Problems Forum
    For about 3 weeks now, I have been unable to start my truck after doing standpipes, dummy plugs, oil cooler, stc fitting, and injectors(A lot of time waiting on testing tools). Testing through the IPR, there is evidently a large HPO leak as you can hear a large air leak on the driver side and...
  19. 6.0 Motor problems
    Skip below to ISSUE or SUMMARY if I am rambling too much. My truck has been sitting for about 1 year now without being started. Stopped driving it because my oil cooler went out and the shop I was going to take it to couldn't get me in right away plus I was considering the bulletproof oil cooler...
  20. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Not that I would EVER do something so heinous as to delete my EGR. But theoretically, if I or someone I knew did do this criminal act, and theoretically they were dumb and didnt know you needed to tune the egr system out.... what would one do to fix this issue? Unfortunately in this theoretical...
